NEW- It's called Enzyme Solutions Formula 17. The manufacturer is Enzyme Formulations Inc but is only sold through "licensed, certified, or registered healthcare professionals". I got it through the ND I'm seeing although my chiropractor is in the process of setting up an account with them. My chiropractor also sold something very similar. Maybe check around with some chiropractors in your area to see if any carry enzymes that help fight yeast.
CLASSIC - It was sort of dumb luck that I found him because I'd searched the internet for local NDs & couldn't find any. My suggestion would be to ask around at natural health food stores or places that sell organics. Or search for health or wellness stores. I was surprised to find 2 doctors who have offices IN pharmacies.
It doesn't look like this board is very active, but that's alright. I've been on SP for over 2 years & have been dieting & exercising for over 3 years. I lost 30 pounds & have about 10-14 more to go to reach my goal weight.
I've known I've had a candida problem for a few years now & try to watch carbs & take probiotics religiously but looking back on my symptoms, I now know that it goes back well over 10 years.
Two months ago, I started seeing a naturapathic doctor who diagnosed me with 3 issues, one of which is candida in my large intestines. For the first month, I was taking a powder before bed to help break down the cell walls of the candida so that my morning probiotic could break it down but I didn't change my diet until last week. Over the past 2 months of supplements/vitamins, I put 6 pounds back on. Last week I decided that I really need to kill off the candida, so I cut carbs WAY back & I'm so excited to see the scale moving in the right direction again! I've lost 4 pounds!! My doctor thinks I can fix this over the next couple of months & I hope he's right.
Well, I hope that people are still checking this board. There is not a lot of support for candida issues.
